As you know, last week was spring break…and it was COLD. Okay, maybe not COLD, but too cold for spring break in south Texas, right? And Baby was just beginning to recover from the flu, so we mostly stuck around the house. But on Saturday afternoon, we decided we needed to do at least one fun, new thing before letting spring break slip away entirely. So, we loaded up in the car and headed out to the Cibolo Nature Center (CNC), here in Boerne.
We’ve been to the CNC before, but for very specific classes, family photos, etc…things that didn’t allow time for much exploring. This time though? This time, we explored as much of it as we could before hungry tummies let us know it was time to go.
WHO: You and your besties…bring them all!
WHAT: Rhea Lana’s Children’s Consignment Event
WHEN: March 30th (Pre-Sale), March 31st-April 6th (Main Event); April 7th (FREE Foster Family Shopping Day)
WHERE: 11323 Bandera Road, San Antonio
WHY: To easily sell goods your family no longer needs and shop for the ones you do!
I feel like, this year, people are really getting into the whole “New Year, New Me” thing more than ever when it comes to simplifying their lives and organizing their homes…and I blame it on Marie Kondo. It’s a beautiful, freeing thing to purge your home of unwanted or unnecessary items, but it isn’t always easy—especially when it comes to getting rid of mountains and mountains of children’s clothing and goods! And on the flip-side of that, who doesn’t love finding a good deal on the next round of clothing, shoes, and toys our ever-growing kiddos need?
Well, today we have a guest post from Boerne mom, Julie Walker, to tell us all about her business, Rhea Lana’s of Northwest San Antonio. So, read on Mamas! And mark your calendars for another amazing local event!
Hello, moms! Have you heard the news? Rhea Lana’s of Northwest San Antonio’s TENTH semi-annual Children’s Consignment Event is fast approaching! The upcoming Spring Event, which kicks off on March 31st, will be our biggest and best yet and we’re hoping you’ll join the FUN! Here are three ways you can get involved:
1. Consign with Us!
Consigning is easy! Just SIGN UP on our website and from there, you can enter the items you’d like to sell. We accept all things your kids have gently loved, including clothes (birth through teens, as well as maternity), shoes, books, toys, baby gear & equipment, outdoor toys, movies, and more. We recommend you price your items at 30% of retail (that’s 70% off), and also that you agree to sell at half-price during the final days of the event (half is better than none, right?). At the end, you may either pick up unsold items or choose to donate them to local foster families and other charities who partner with Rhea Lana’s.
And the best part of consigning? You earn 70% of your sales! The average consignor makes over $400 at our events—whoa! Wouldn’t that be a nice bonus this Spring?! Checks are ready to pick up on the final day of the event, April 7th.
To get you started, we’re offering a coupon for HALF-OFF the $10 Consignor fee to Sowing Seeds readers. Click HERE to take advantage of that deal!
